International Students

Welcome to the CU community!

We are so glad that you will be joining our Campbellsville University (CU) community! Take a look at the information below and get ready to join us at CU!

Be sure to pay special attention to deadlines and the list of things to do before you arrive.


Fall 2022- Plan to arrive on August 17 or 18. You can take the airport shuttle to campus, or come to our CGE Welcome times on August 17.

International Student Orientation begins 19 August 2022. All new international students should plan to attend orientation.
*Athletes- Some athletes will arrive early for practice. If you are an athlete, contact your coach about your required arrival dates.

Airport Shuttle

Make Your Reservation Here

If you need to arrive the day before, we recommend that you stay at the Tru Hotel, Hampton Inn or Springfield Suites at the Louisville airport. These hotels share a parking lot and we will meet students who stay overnight at the hotel, after completing the airport pickup.

When you make your reservations, tell them that you are with the Campbellsville University group to get a discount on your room. You must make your reservations before August 5 to get this discount!

Arriving on Campus

We have also prepared a welcome for you when you arrive on campus.

All students on the shuttle will be taken to the Student Activity Center, where you will meet CGE staff and Resident Directors who will help you find your dorm and give you important orientation information.

Other Arrival Plans

We know that some students will not be able to take the airport shuttle on the day they arrive or they will prefer to make other plans. Please use these resources if you need to find a hotel in the area, rent a car, or take a taxi.

If you are arriving on your own or with family, please come to campus on August 17 at 11 a.m. or 6 p.m. for an easy and welcoming check-in experience. We will be there to answer all your questions, get you checked-in to your dorm, and give you other important information for your first few days on campus.

This year, you will be enrolled in an online orientation before you arrive. Then, we will have an in-person orientation on 19 August.

All new CU students will also be attending New Student Orientation on August 20-22.

You can find the link for the online orientation in the left column of this page. We will send you your password and more information about the in-person sessions soon.

Dorm Supplies

Some students like to purchase bedding and other things for their dorms before they arrive.

CU has partnered with OCM to help you get the things you need. You have the option to order from OCM and they will ship your things directly to CU!
If you are going to use this service, order no later than July 15. Visit the International Orientation page for more information.

If you order after July 15, these are some of the most popular companies that students order from:
Bed Bath and Beyond

CGE will also provide shopping shuttles to Walmart on 17 and 18 August for students who were unable to order in advance.

If you place an order before you arrive, send it to this address:
Student Name/Student ID# c/o CGE

  • Your country’s flag
